Food And Drink

We have highlighted some of restaurants in the area. Remember it’s our taste and you may not agree. We have a file on site with sample menus of these any many other restaurants and takeaways including details of those that welcome dogs.


Spice 4 U

Is very good, clean modern and bright with good food although it gets very busy at weekends. They also do takeaways. 41 Hungate, Pickering.


Italian Pizza


Its on the right hand side of Pickering high street. Kevin and I tried it out recently and it was very good food. Pasta, Pizza and what you would expect from an Italian.


Fig Salad

White Swan

Is located on Pickering high street. We think it is excellent, quite “foody”. A main course costs about £12 – £18.
Pet Friendly in Bar Area

Fox and Hounds Sinnington

About three miles out of Pickering on the way to Helmsley. It has a restaurant as well as the pub food and has a very good and well deserved reputation. You really need to book though especially on weekends; it is slightly pricier than some of the pub meals but is very good.

Pub Food

Pub Food

Fox & Rabbit, Lockton (Pet friendly)

Black Swan, Pickering (Pet friendly)

Good food and a great selection of craft beers on tap including those from their own on-site brewery.

A proper country pub with excellent food and great beer approximately 7 miles from Pickering towards Helmsley. Open seven evenings and Sunday lunchtime. Dogs allowed in the bar.

Perfect Cottage We come back to Eastgate Cottages again and again and they are the standard by which we judge over holiday cottages. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We have come here for nearly seven years and are already thinking about when we will be back!

What Our Guests Say

Another excellent New Year break. We stay with Eastgate Cottages every year and sometimes twice a year. Always of a very high standard, we have never been disappointed, only delighted. We treat this as our home in the country and wouldn’t go anywhere else. It doesn’t get any better, just book, you will love it.

What Our Guests Say

Relaxing September Break We were in the Readman cottage. We received a warm welcome and the welcome pack of cheese and cake was delicious. The facilities were excellent and the location was ideal for walking and visiting places of interest.The steam railway is on the doorstep and the bird of prey centre in Helmsley well worth a visit. Helen and John were very helpful in recommending places to visit and where to have my car checked which had developed a problem.

What Our Guests Say

Perfect. Pickering was chosen as an equidistant base for the coast, York and Harrogate and really could not have been better. Pickering is great with lots of amenities.  We stayed in the Farmhouse and everything was spot on. The place was clean and we had a bit of cake and cheese to welcome us. The place exudes quality from the kitchen utensils, fixtures and fittings through to the bedding and towels. The staff were great and the whole set up was just perfect. Thanks to all.

What Our Guests Say

“The cottage was of such a high standard real home from home feel. The cleanliness was spot on. We have visited Eastgate cottages for 16 yrs now and very often see the same people returning. Over that time we have stayed in most of the cottages at Eastgate and never had any cause to complain about anything.”

- Catherine and James, Nottingham
